Nature is a savage muse. I’m Madison Woods, an Arkansas Nature & Wildlife artist. The colors in my art come from the Ozark pigments.
Paleo Paints & Pigments
Artist quality wild-crafted handcrafted watercolors made from rocks, clay, or herbs and other natural sources. I call them Paleo Paints because this is the way paint was made long ago. The primitive drawings in caves used pigments created in the same way as I am creating them today- by smashing and grinding rocks, clay, and herbs. Whereas the ancient ones simply mixed their pigment with water or animal fats, I am using a still quite old recipe of gum Arabic and honey to bind the color.
All of the colors I use in my own paintings are created from natural materials sourced right here in the Ozarks, unless I specify otherwise in the painting description.
When I make paints for myself to use, I sometimes have enough to sell some of it. When I have paints ready to sell, I’ll post them here at my Wild Ozark shop (some items are sold through Etsy, but there will be a link in the listing here if that’s the case). They’re also sometimes available at the Kingston Square Arts gallery in Kingston, Arkansas.
Any paints for sale will be displayed in the section below. Thank you for browsing and reading about Wild Ozark Paleo Paints! Feel free to email me if you have questions. My contact info is linked to in the menu.
